The B.S.M.E. Mechanical Engineering Major offered by Ohio University is designed to provide a solid foundation in higher mathematics and basic sciences followed by extensive instruction in all of the classical mechanical engineering disciplines.


Program Overview

The B.S.M.E. Mechanical Engineering Major offered by Ohio University's program has four educational objectives:

  • Prepare graduates for engineering careers and advanced education
  • Graduate mechanical engineers with technical skills
  • Graduate mechanical engineers with skills to perform in the work environment
  • Graduate mechanical engineers who are informed and aware of contemporary issues and the impact of engineering on society.

Design and project experiences dealing with real engineering problems are integrated into the curriculum to help students:

  • apply their own creativity in formulating alternative engineering solutions
  • develop an ability to work independently and/or in teams, which is an important skill for continued growth as a practicing engineer
  • bridge the gap between the acquisition of engineering knowledge in required courses and the application of that knowledge to solve engineering problems.
Freshman/First-Year Admission
  • To best prepare for the demands of the academic programs in Russ College, four years of college preparatory math, one year of chemistry, and one year of physics are necessary. Students ranked in the top 30 percent of their classes who score at least 24 on the ACT or comparable SAT are most likely to be successful in Russ College of Engineering and Technology.  

Opportunities Upon Graduation

  • From automobiles and airplanes to wind turbines and power plants to artificial hearts and search-and-rescue robots, mechanical engineers design solutions to help us transport and power our world and make a meaningful difference in people's lives.
  • Mechanical engineers work in design, manufacturing, research, and sales for companies such as Boeing, Toyota and General Electric. Some of our graduates have been hired by professional racing teams and experimental aircraft manufacturers.
  • Mechanical engineering graduates also can use their degree as a solid background for advanced studies in engineering, law, medicine, or business.
